I was told that the Samsung Galaxy A54 was the only useable phone outside of China hence why I bought it while there. It is not the case. Though most is in English many apps remain in Chinese: ex. Samsung Store only displays Chinese apps (No Messenger, etc). I got a local SIM card thinking once there is no connection to China I could install said apps but again I was wrong. Not only that but I cannot even connect with a local Internet provider. When asked for Region (to set up my local provider), all I see is Chinese provinces, and for Providers only the 3 from China. It seems rooting is my only choice. Nevertheless, this begs a few questions. Will rooting my Chinese-bought phone help solve this problem (no connection to China whatsoever) or is the China problem in the hardware? Assuming not in the hardware and rooting is OK, then, since all rooting pages seem to refer to phones bought in the west will it still work on my phone and is the process different? Any advice would be helpful.
